    Default Need Thoroughbred Quotes~(crossposted)

    Hi Gang- looking for some quotes from well known horsemen about thoroughbreds for a project we are working on- we have several from George Morris, Bertalan deNemethy, and Rodney Jenkins but I know there are more out there-

    Thanks in advance!

    Lol, this is so not what I thought this thread was going to be about!

    I was thinking funny sayings only a TB owner would know like, 'treat me like a thoroughbred and I'll never be a nag'

    Sorry Bev, no help here

    Maybe not quite what you're after, but from Jane Smiley's Horse Heaven:
    "They are exuberant. They are sensitive. They are opinionated. They have, in general, too much of every lively quality rather than too little." To me, that about sums up the OTTB who taught me the riding ropes.

    not famous quotes but my trainer loves a ottb. A few things I have heard her say...

    "You had me at Off the Track Thoroughbred."

    "All TB's have at least one screw loose."

    I assume you mean people that work with Sport TBs not racing types, owners, trainers, riders?

    Yes, OTTBs now sport horses-we want to continue the wave of pro TB sentiment in the sport horse world....

    Default First time time posting here, genetics question.

    What would be the the theoretical result of two thoroughbreds one with Native Dancer 4 gens back,(stud) and one with Secretariat 4 gens back, (dam) being crossed with only Bold Ruler as the bloodline that both have in common? Please give me some input. Thank you!

    Welcome to the forum. You should start a new thread to get a response.

    As for quotes:

    I am still under the impression that there is nothing alive quite so beautiful as a thoroughbred horse.
    John Galsworthy

    The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep.
    In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and
    they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use.
    C.W. Anderson

    When you call upon a Thoroughbred, he gives you all the speed, strength of heart and sinew in him. When you call on a jackass, he kicks.
    Patricia Neal
    Nothing with horses is ever easy or cheap. And if it is, you're doing it wrong. They always rip out part of your soul when they leave. I guess that's how they find us later.
